* Reflecting on our five years together.

I was at a client’s house, their Bichon on my lap, when I had my phone interview with Jennifer from The Animali Farm. How the heck had it gotten this far?! Yes, I’d sent in an application to adopt the Fjordhorse known as BM April #4218 but I really didn’t think I’d be approved! Truth be told, I embellished my horse experience just a wee bit in some crazy grasp at just trying to buy this horse some more time before heading to auction. BM April was in Canada… Jennifer from Animali was in California… and I was sitting there in Florida petting Toby and doing my best to act like I knew what I was doing. I didn’t. At all.

Jennifer and I spoke for nearly an hour. Toby certainly loved the extra attention she was getting by being my partner in crime that day. The question was finally posed, “Do you want BM April?”. (My God! Was I really approved to adopt a horse?!) The word “YES!” flew out of my mouth before I could stop it. The wheels were put in motion. I was adopting a horse. Or should I say, we (meaning Scottie and I) were adopting a horse. He just didn’t know it, yet.

Yep, buying a horse off the internet from 1 photo is perfectly fine. :-)
